Robert "Bob" Edwin Boker, age 90, of Ft. Walton Beach, Florida, passed away Friday,  October 30, 2020.  He was born December 15, 1929 in Brighton, Illinois, to the late Henry and Hilda Boker.

After working most of his life in sales in the St. Louis, Missouri area, Bob moved his family to Ft. Walton Beach in 1980.  He was the 2nd owner of Mr. C's Wine & Cheese for 4 years, then finally decided to retire. Not long after retiring, he turned his puzzle hobby into a side business, complimenting the completed puzzles with beautifully handmade frames. He loved to paint literally anything, remodel houses in his spare time and even built a duplex on his own. Bob enjoyed spending a lot of time outside as well, working on the yard, fishing, and pheasant hunting.

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Irene Christiansen, his children, Jackie Leturno (Neal), Bob Boker, Cindie Boker, and Jeff Boker (Beth). Beloved grandfather of Christopher Boker, Jonathan Boker (Krisi), Holly Tucker (Jude Miller), Cassie Oglesby, Spencer Boker and great-grandfather of Alexander, Tristan, Theodore, and Noah.

In keeping with his wishes, Bob was cremated with no services.
